This comprehensive and detailed sourcebook offers humanitarian organizations, for the first time, essential information on how to prepare for the key un-natural disasters which they have to face in an ever more dangerous world. The possibility of a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or enhanced explosive (CBRNE) disaster has never been greater. Developed countries have the expert infrastructure to deal with Three Mile Island or the Tokyo subway sarin attack. In developing countries such incidents are just as - or more - likely to occur, but the emergency services may be unable to respond in the same way, and international humanitarian agencies may be called on to assist. Extreme Emergencies will be an essential tool in helping agencies plan and prepare for the worst case. Led by staff from the UK medical emergency agency Merlin, the book draws together key international expertise and experience. It explains emergency planning, management and safety issues; gives guidance on the range of hazards, their characteristics, clinical effects and required treatment; and offers detailed resource information from equipment to organizations and training issues. All international organizations providing humanitarian assistance in middle and low-income countries will find Extreme Emergencies an essential planning, preparation and training tool.
